Wednesday 19th: ‘Great ape minds & human evolution: Understanding our great ape relatives’  talk by Dr Zanna Clay, Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology, Durham University

Chimpanzees and bonobos are human’s closest living relatives and thus represent crucial living models for reconstructing human evolution. Despite being closely related, chimpanzees and bonobos show many striking differences in behaviour and social organization and cognition. In this presentation, I will explore how understanding our great ape relatives can contribute to a richer and more balanced model of human evolution.
